We are praying over New York City as they experienced a bombing this morning, local time.

“Port Authority Explosion Suspect ID’d in NYC Blast as Akayed Ullah”–ABC7 News
“A pipe bomb affixed to the suspect with Velcro straps detonated at about 7:20 a.m. in a passageway between subway lines that runs a full city block under 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues”

“Suspect in Times Square Blast Described as Disgruntled Former Driver”USA Today
“NEW YORK — Hundreds of commuters were evacuated from subway trains and dozens of emergency vehicles swarmed Times Square on Monday after an apparently botched terror attack triggered chaos at a busy transit hub during the morning rush.”

“Port Authority Explosion: Suspect ID”d in ‘Attempted Terrorist Attack'”Fox News
“A Bangladeshi man reportedly inspired by ISIS set off a pipe bomb inside New York’s Port Authority bus terminal during rush hour Monday morning, sowing mass chaos but causing few injuries — likely because the “attempted terrorist” detonated his “low-tech device” prematurely.”


“Lost in Translation? Pope Ponders an Update to Lord’s Prayer”The New York Times
“In a new television interview, Pope Francis said the common rendering of one line in the prayer — ‘lead us not into temptation’ — was ‘not a good translation’ from ancient texts. ‘Do not let us fall into temptation,’ he suggested, might be better because God does not lead people into temptation; Satan does.”

“What Child is This?”Back to Basics
“The Child who brings joy to the world is first of all called the Wonderful Counselor. He will bring about universal and everlasting righteousness, peace and prosperity. The nations of the world will look to Jesus sitting upon the throne of David and praise Him for what He has brought about through His wisdom.”
